Summer Hirtzel is a San Francisco street art seeker, aspiring arts nonprofit fundraiser, museum nerd, choir geek, and Oxford comma enthusiast extraordinaire. She fell dumbstruck in love with an Anselm Kiefer painting at BAM/PFA when she was 16 and has been obsessed with art, history, and arts education ever since.

Summer graduated from Hampshire College with a BA in Art History and Poetry in 2012. For her senior thesis, she wrote & self-published a book on ethics, memory studies, and appropriative representation in post-World War II visual art and poetry. After graduating, she attended the Smith College Summer Institute of Art Museum Studies where she helped conceptualize, curate, design, and install an exhibition at the Smith College Museum of Art.

In her free time she loves to sing, go blues dancing, and daydream about one day keeping bees.
